  • A beautiful Tower, soaring, Visual reference point marked by an original sculpture of an elephant with "dampers" pointed in the past definitely able to scare possible assailants.

  • A bit of a climb but it’s worth it for the views. We were lucky it was a beautifully clear day, Cagliari lay before us like a large scale model. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • The only drawback? Was closed so we couldn't visit it internally. The rest is truly majestic and imposing. A show of ancient architecture.

  • Fairly steep and narrow wooden stairs to climb up the four levels. Definitely worth the climb. You'll be rewarded with a beautiful 360 view of Cagliari. Small cost of €3. Interesting history which you can read about at the tower. Look out for the elephant sculpture at the gate.
  • Torre dell'Elefante or Elephant's Tower took its name from the presence of a small marble elephant on a ledge sunk into one of its corners, according to our tour guide. This is another drive-by tourist attraction to see by the City Tour Cagliari.
  • If you're walking around the city you should have to take a picture of the little elephant. If it's open then get inside. Really good view from the top of the tower!
  • One of the attraction in Cagliari. Important things to know before visit: - There is a combo ticket that include this monument for 12€, it's worth (you can get the ticket in the same place). - Single ticket is 2€. - There is an elephant sculture in one side of the tower. If you don't see it you can't say that you visited it. - Wonderful view of the city. - It was a prison and a place to hang criminals. Don't hesitate to visit this place, it's worth spend time here.
  • Stunning view over the City. Definitely worth visiting. There's also an elevator close by if you can't walk up.
